French textile artist, Ségolaine Schweitzer, works on wool, using charming rustic stitches and an unexpected array of threads and knitting yarns.
Ségolaine is an embroiderer, quilter and designer. She creates bags, jackets, quilts and wall hangings, and specialises in working with wool. In particular she loves creating with reclaimed woollen fabrics, stitching and embellishing, patchworking, and layering. Ségolaine is passionate about giving new life to fabrics which have had a previous purpose. Ségolaine observes the seasons and nature, to find inspiration and beauty which she channels into her recycled textile creations.
We recently hosted Ségolaine as our guest at the Sydney Craft & Quilt Fair, with her decorative textile panels inspired by the seasons, embellished wool garments, accessories, framed textile pictures and wall hangings. If you missed her work in Sydney, check out her beautiful books A Trip around the Wool, and A Trip around the Wool continues, published by Quiltmania Editions. The books will be on sale at Can Do Books at Melbourne and Canberra Craft & Quilt Fairs.
